Juniors on course

GOLF: Warwick golfer Jack Daley beat his best score by three shots to win the best nett at the Darling Downs Junior Classic at the Warwick Golf Club yesterday.

He hit 76 off the stick and with a handicap of 16 finished with a nett score of 60.

Daley said his best play was his short and long iron shots.

"This is the best I have played and I want to win the gross next year," he said.

Fellow Warwick player Chris Hynes also hit 76 and was runner-up in division 1 with a nett of 63.

The boys 18-hole gross event was won by Gatton golfer James Cohen-Campbell who hit 72, five better than last year.

After living at Inglewood and playing for the Warwick club in recent years, Samantha Foley now lives on the Gold Coast but retained the girls title with 76.

She said due to school commitments, she was playing less golf so was not concerned she didn't match her score of one under last year.

"I was happy with my three birdies but lost four shots in bunkers," she said.

Both Daley and Hynes have earned free entry into the amateur section of the pro-am this afternoon.
